I favor a cognitive behavioral approach and come from a strengths perspective, but work with other approaches as indicated and needed.
I believe in the inherent strength we all have to work to overcome adversity in our lives. If you, a family member of any age, or someone you may know are struggling with depression, anxiety, family dynamic challenges, or any life stressor that is keeping you from living the authentic and happy life you deserve, I am here to give you the help and guidance needed to overcome those obstacles and challenges. Sometimes adversity is a call to action to make changes in our lives we are all capable of doing with commitment and effort. The choice to ask for help is a choice made in strength, and I am here to support that journey!

New patients and referrals often ask me how I practice. My reply is usually that it is up to them! Since I have been trained and have considerable experience in a variety of approaches ( cognitive , behavoral, psychodynamic,couple therapy),it really depends on which approach would be most effective and acceptable to them. Because of different personality types, people do not all respond well or the same to only one approach dictated by someones training. Most find this non cookie cutter approach and attention very effective and rewarding.

We are humans of connection and our development can be burdened by the moments of disengagement. I truly believe in the ability of the individual. Many of the obstacles in our lives are either created or transformed by the circles we hold. From the family you may have to the one you may have come from, from the friends in your surrounding, to the partner you share your life with. We attract what we are and success is greatest when achieved together. Life can be like a bucket under a dripping ceiling, it can withstand a lot, but eventually overflows.

Cognitive Behavioral (CBT) Therapists

How does cognitive behavioral therapy work?

Cognitive behavioral therapy works by exploring how your thoughts affect your emotions and experiences. CBT helps you identify distortions in your thinking. For example, you may tend to jump to the worst case scenario (catastrophizing) or think in extremes (all-or-nothing thinking). A therapist can teach you how to push back against those thoughts to ultimately change your feelings and behavior for the better. They can also provide coping skills to better deal with stressors and challenges.

When do I know to seek treatment with cognitive behavioral therapy?

It’s reasonable to consider cognitive behavioral therapy if you struggle to manage difficult emotions or behaviors to such an extent that you are not getting the most out of life on a day-to-day basis. If you want a shorter term, concrete, skills-based approach, CBT is a great option. (By contrast, other types of therapy may devote more time to exploring your past and its effects.) The decision to seek CBT also depends on the condition you’re treating; CBT is an effective treatment for anxiety, depression, trauma, and many other disorders.

How can I find a cognitive behavioral therapist for someone else?

To find a cognitive behavioral therapist for someone else, you may want to begin by discussing the person’s problem, researching cognitive behavioral therapy, and assessing whether the approach is the right fit. You could then reach out to a few cognitive behavioral therapists in this directory, explain the scenario, have a consultation with those available, and determine who could be a good match.

Why is CBT such a popular form of therapy?

CBT has become a popular form of therapy because it is effective and accessible. Robust research has demonstrated that CBT is an effective treatment for many mental health conditions. And CBT can be learned in relatively few sessions, which means that many people can engage in the process, afford it, and see results quickly. It involves learning concrete skills such as disputing unhelpful thoughts; these skills can also be taught and spread widely.
